1. BREAK THOSE LINKS

  • Unsubscribe from their newsletters
  • Unfollow them on social media
  • Ask them #whomademyclothes | #whatsinmyclothes | #whomademyfabric

2. SHIFT YOUR MINDSET

  • Let go of your “need” to impulse buy

3. LOOK AFTER YOUR WARDROBE

  • Care for your clothes, repair them when damaged instead of just replacing
  • Rewear them- this is especially important for special occasion outfits, you do not need a new outfit for each one, or if you do rent it
  • If you’re creative upcycle or even make your own clothes

4. BUY LESS

  • Buy only what you need and do it purposefully

5. BUY BETTER

  • Swap clothes with friends
  • Buy vintage or second-hand
  • Buy timeless over trendy

There you have it, those are my top tips to end the fast fashion cycle, if you think I missed anything tweet me and let me know.
